Restaurant details
Good for: Bar Scene
Dining options: Breakfast, After-hours, Reservations
Neighbourhood: Downtown / The Loop
Description: Forget 'casual dining.' That's an industry term so out of touch with how consumers eat and drink today. For premium quality and style; fare that's at times familiar and other times adventurous and a laid-back modern setting, Houlihan's is a true original.

Had the pleasure of visiting this place over St Patrick's Day weekend and it was so much fun. Love the music and though the bar was slammed with people the bar tenders were attentive and courteous. They really seemed to be having fun. I have been here a few times and always had a blast.

I can certainly recommend the wings whether buffalo or Thai style. This place is at the bottom of the mile and is a good place to take a rest and have a few beers and a snack. Waitresses are attentive and the atmosphere is friendly - its primarily a sports bar as so many are but its not over powering and you can relax and chat no problem.

We were staying at the Hyatt Regency for the Cubs Convention. We wanted to get away from the hotel but didn't want to go out in the snow. An employee of the Hyatt told us how to get to Houlihans thru the pedway. We were seated right away and encountered Heather. She was the best waitress we had encountered on our trip. She gave us her recommendations and she was right . I had the French dip My girlfriend had the bacon cheeseburger and the best fries. she made us feel at home. what an asset in an employee. cant wait to visit Chicago again and eat here

I revisited Houlihan's with a large group of people, and we were given the party room, just the right size for our group. The atmosphere was casual and warm, and the delicious buffet was right outside of our door. It had everything you could hope for in a reasonably priced buffet, and the privacy that the party room provided was priceless!

It is somewhat well hidden between Michigan Avenue and the Hyatt Regency on S. Wacker Blvd. But if you are looking for good food at reasonable prices go to Houlihan's. It is a pub style atmosphere with (imagine that!) a huge selection of drinks for all comers. We had the salmon and the scallops and they were excellent.

Houlihan's also has a very inexpensive breakfast ($9.99) that included an omelette station and a reasonable assortment of fresh fruits!!
